    The Rock on TNT?!?!?

    Once upon a time the very thought of that would have been earth-shattering.

    • Bob

      I don't get it.

      • Monday night wars must have been before your time…

        TNT used to be the cable home of WCW Nitro and Thunder

        • GODSENT83

          Thunder was on Tbs

      • Michael413

        TNT was the home of Monday Nitro

        In the Monday night Wars, WWF was on TNN and WCW was on TNT. The Rock in WCW would've been "earth-shattering"

      • Ken

        WCW Monday Nitro used to air on TNT.
        Rocky appearing on Nitro would have been earth-shattering.

          “earth shattering”

    Bret Hart on RAW? Sweet! I have tickets to that event!

    I gotta admit. Ever since The Rock came back to WWE lats year, it's like his acting career has just had a resurgence and taken off! Fast 5 was a hit, GI Joe was a perfect role for him, Fast 6 is in the works, the acting world identifies more with him now and he's as renowned as he was in the wrestling world when he was a full timer. This has turned into a symbiotic relationship, and it's working well for him. I'm extremely happy, love to see it, and have no hatred in my heart for the man doing his thing outside of wrestling. He's moving vertically in life, not horizontally, unlike all the stiffs who try to knock him down and want to keep him in the box that is wrestling.

    I don’t mean to sound condescending but isn’t this below The Rock? An actor who makes 15-30mil a year as an actor is starring in a reality series. This usually happens to people who are trying to resurrect their career or lower B card actors. This just seems out of place. I’ll check it out for sure.

    In England wwf was on sky sports and wcw was hardly shown.

    • Ryan

      Don’t you mean Britain always the same always England never Scotland Wales or northern England typical englishman and wcw was always on if you bothered to look but then again that’s too much hardwork

      • lukeheffernan

        wow… someone needs to take a couple of deep breaths and calm down. Maybe he didn’t know they had sky sports in scotland and Wales? No need to kick off over it.
